The world is changing so fast! Now, more than ever, you need to be aware, and prepared. If you carry a gun, when is the last time you went to the range to practice? When is the last time you practice your draw stroke with an unloaded gun? When is the last time you did a defensive drill with the family?
Do you have your peripherals? Flashlight, knife, pepper spray? How is your Situational Awareness? Have you practiced active threat assessment to help focus your attention? Are you mentally running what if scenarios in your head? Have you done any personal defense training? Hey, even we aging baby boomers can kick butt if we know how!

The Department of Homeland Security had Active Shooter training on its website, free. It is actually pretty good. https://www.dhs.gov/active-shooter-preparedness If nothing else, it will give you something to consider.
